Your foyer gives the first peek into the personality of your home. An entryway console table will be the first styled vignette that will welcome all of your guests. So how should you style an entryway console table that sets the stage for your aesthetic? Balance is one of the most important aspects of styling a console table, and can be approached in several ways. For example, if you have a full console cabinet with a solid body, your décor can either be a mix of large pieces in small quantities or a combination of smaller curios layered to create a full look. For open-framed console tables, balance can be achieved by dividing the composition into its top and bottom parts.

A large artwork or a mirror above your table can serve as the main focal point to draw attention to the console table. You can add smaller pieces such as lamps, vases, trays, frames, or a stack of books to accentuate the anchor piece. Substantial items such as big woven baskets, wicker boxes, or huge, fluffy pillows, are typically placed on the lower part of the table to help balance the visual weight of the console table.

These 30 inspirations on how to style an entryway console table will give you a plethora of ideas on how to create a great first impression in your home.
